Kunal Johar , OpenWater

Who is Kunal Johar? Some say he is a tech-savvy, blunt speaking, highly productive startup founder with a rock solid technical foundation and incredible business acumen. In his early career he received accolades for his technological prowess at the Department of Defense and NATO.

After leaving the government, he formed a consultancy where he architected software systems for two companies that went on to receive Inc 500 status.

The consultancy was just the appetizer for his real dream - to build a product company. He continues to realize this dream at OpenWater, a company he co-founded with Timothy Spell. With revenue doubling year over year, he plans to make OpenWater his avenue to promote his views on how businesses should be:

Inspired by Tony Hsieh and Ben Horowitz, he believes companies must treat employees and customers fairly at all costs and especially when tough decisions need to be made.

Besides OpenWater, Kunal is passionate about education, and can occassionaly be found teaching.
